RINO Watch Report: “Stupid is as Stupid Does! 3/18/18

This is our 3rd installment of our RINO Watch stupidity report. I know I will never run out of materials as the RINOs always outdo themselves to vie for the stupidity award. This week is no exception!

Stupid Does Topic of the Week

The Firing of a Corrupt FBI Assistant Director-Andrew McCabe

The set up:  Finally, a corrupt, partisan, top FBI official who was tainted in the Clinton Email Probe and the Trump Russia Collusion Probe was actually fired!  Trump is being blamed for his firing but the truth is that the firing was recommended by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and the DOJ Inspector General, both of which were Obama appointees and heralded by Republicans and Democrats alike as non-partisan!  McCabe was accused of lying and leaking.  His testimony before Congress and that of his former boss, James Comey, were contradictory and both under oath.  The bleeding heart RINOs are wringing their collective hands over the fact that McCabe will lose his pension now.  How about this saved the American Taxpayers $$$ rather than continue to support an alleged felon?  That is your setup, McCabe vs the American Taxpayer.

Senator Marco Rubio:  In support of McCabe receiving his pension, little Marco said;  “He should have been allowed to finish through the weekend.”  Rubio went on to say;  “I would’ve certainly done it differently.  THAT IS WHY WE DID NOT ELECT YOU PRESIDENT!  Rubio went on to say that the Trump Administration, his old buddy Jeff Sessions, and the OPR and IG have damaged the reputation of the FBI!  He opined; “…we need to be very careful about taking these very important entities and smearing everybody in them with a broad stroke.”  No one is smearing the entire FBI and the DOJ with a broad stroke.  Trump et al are saying that many in the leadership of the FBI are corrupt and need to be held accountable.  

Senator Jeff (I hate Trump) Flake:  Many RINOs are threatening Trump not to fire Special Council Robert Mueller.  Trump has never threatened to fire Mueller in spite of Mueller’s stacking his prosecutor and investigative team with Hillary Clinton donors and supporters!  This is in spite of the fact that Mueller was fired James Comey’s and McCabe’s former boss which is a conflict of interest.  This is in spite of the fact that Mueller helped Obama/Clinton to quietly push through the Uranium One deal giving Russia 20% of the US uranium stockpile.  Flake said of a potential Mueller firing;  “People see that as a massive red line that can’t be crossed.”
But, Flaky did not condemn Mueller for any of these transgressions!

Senator Lindsay (Minnie Mouse) Graham:  Of course the co-president of the RINO Senate Club (McCain (Mickey Mouse) is the other co-president) had to weigh in.  For one reason, goofy Adam Schiff, has more TV appearances than Graham in the past year!  Minnie contended that there is no link between McCabe’s actions and that of Mueller and that Mueller should be left alone by Trump.  Minnie said; “He (Mueller) is following the evidence where it takes him, and I think it’s very important he be allowed to do his job without interference.”  And, “There are many Republicans who share my view”.   Minnie has even called for a Senate investigation into the firing of McCabe.  Earth to Minnie, the DOJ/FBI Inspector General will be issuing his report in a couple of weeks.  Hold on to your speedo and see what comes out.  The cameras will wait!

Topic Two:  Confirmation of Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel

Trump fired Rex Tillerson at the State Department and has nominated Mike Pompeo to head up State and a long-standing CIA agent, Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo at the CIA.  Enter the RINO hand wringing crowd opining about how bad these nominees are or how bad Trump botched the firing of T-Tex.

Senator Rand (Yardman) Paul:  The Yardman quickly jumped on a Fake News story that claimed that Haspel oversaw black ops torture while in Thailand.  Even though this story was retracted by its author, Yardman continued his condemnation by saying that; “I don’t think that torture is what America is all about”.  In order to try to stop her nomination, Yardman said; “I’ll do whatever it takes, and that includes filibuster.”  The Yardman had a similar level of vitriol to aim at Pompeo.  “You really want a diplomat to be in charge of the State Department, not someone who is advocating for war.  I frankly think that Pompeo positions are too much of an advocate for regime change, really everywhere.  I don’t think our policy out to be for regime change.”  Really, a diplomat like Hillary who assassinated Gaddafi and destroyed Libya?   Or a diplomat like Kerry who have away the bank to ensure that Iran would become a nuclear power?  Trump has never advocated regime change even in North Korea or Syria.  Trump needs some one in both of these positions that will stand by his tough love stance on North Korea, Syria, Iran and Russia rather than undercut him at every turn.  Heaven forbid he might expect RINOs to give him a break and maybe support his policies!

Senator (Mickey Mouse)  McCain:  Obviously Mickey Mouse had to weigh in and automatically assume the worse about Gina Haspel when he said she must;  “…explain the nature and extent of her involvement in the CIA’s interrogation program during the confirmation process.”    Not, if she had any involvement or if any of her actions may have been absolutely legal at the time.  James Mitchell, one the creators of our enhanced interrogation techniques and the person who interrogated KSM,  has stated that Gina was not involved and is an excellent choice.

Where are all of these RINOs when Obama nominated incompetent, partisan hacks for the CIA, State, Department of Defense, and of course the DOJ and FBI!  The RINOs always say of Democrat presidents that they deserve who they want in their cabinet, but not Trump!

Why aren’t Rubio, Flake, Paul, McCain, and Graham screaming at the top of their lungs about the Democrat obstruction for hundreds of Trump nominees that are still awaiting Senate confirmation aft 14 months?  

Half of President Trump’s nominees are still waiting for confirmation in the Senate. The obstruction is so out of control, even some Senate Democrats believe it is inappropriate.  Last week, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that even some Democrats think that the obstructionism is over the top.  She quoted Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, as saying; ‘I don’t believe we should be holding nominees hostage…Enough is enough.  We need people who are qualified to fill these important positions in our government.”  Why haven’t all of the RINO Senators echoed the same sentiment?

Because they are still

NEVER-TRUMPERS!

2018 Mid-Terms, Just remember, We The People elected President Trump and we won’t forget your lack of support for us and our President in the Mid-Terms!

Reverend Billy Graham-You Are Now Home

“The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven.”

Only Rev. Graham’s words should speak for him:

Rev. Graham has met his savior.  “The most thrilling thing about heaven is that Jesus Christ will be there. I will see Him face to face. Jesus Christ will meet us at the end of life’s journey.”  

Rev. Graham’s advice to us.  “We’ve always needed God from the very beginning of this nation, but today we need him especially. We’re facing a new kind of enemy, we’re involved in a new kind of warfare, and we need the help of the spirit of God.”  

Rev. Graham on God’s never-ending love.  “The Lord said, ‘I will never forsake you.’ No matter how sinful we are, how bad we are, God loves us. …I believe he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for us because he loves us, and he doesn’t have any termination to that love.”  

Rev. Graham has returned home. “The Bible says that as long as we are here on Earth, we are strangers in a foreign land. There are enemies to be conquered before we return home. This world is not our home; our citizenship is in heaven.”  

Rev. Graham tells us to seek answers in God. “Heaven is full of answers for which nobody ever bothered to ask.”  

 Rev. Graham on God’s love. “The cross shows us the seriousness of our sin—but it also shows us the immeasurable love of God. 

Rev. Graham on loss. “God never takes away something from your life without replacing it with something better.”  

Rev. Graham’s faith in the Bible. I’ve read the last page of the Bible, it’s all going to turn out all right.”  

Rev. Graham on God’s power of love. “Sin is the second most powerful force in the universe, for it sent Jesus to the cross. Only one force is greater—the love of God.”  .

Rev. Graham on suffering. “Someone asked me recently if I didn’t think God was unfair, allowing me to have Parkinson’s and other medical problems when I have tried to serve him faithfully. I replied that I did not see it that way at all. Suffering is part of the human condition, and it comes to us all. The key is how we react to it, either turning away from God in anger and bitterness or growing closer to him in trust and confidence.”  

Rev. Graham on Courage.  “Believers, look up – take courage. The angels are nearer than you think.”  

May he rest in peace and may we remember his message of hope and love.

Mass Shootings and Prescribed Behavioral Drugs for Juveniles-Ritalin and Others

 

See the source imageIn 1902, a British physician was the first to diagnose today’s Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).   In the 1960’s, the APA defined ADHD as a MENTAL DISORDER.   Over time, doctors and psychiatrists observed that not all of those kids they diagnosed exhibited “Hyperactivity”.  Today, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has subdivided ADHD into three distinct behaviors:

  • Combined Type ADHD (Both hyperactive and inattentive)
  • Predominantly Inattentive type ADHD
  • Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive type ADHD

In short, we are diagnosing our kids with ADHD for practically all types of “abnormal” behavior.  If I am a day dreamer and not all that motivated in school, I have ADHD.  If I am a typical boy who is very active and not all that focused, I have ADHD.  If I am both hyperactive and not all that motivated, I have ADHD.  Surprise, surprise, boys are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD as girls!  Have these people every raised boys and girls?  Boys are naturally active while girls are less active but a whole lot more verbal!  I guess you have guessed that I am not all that into this diagnosis.  It gets better!

Controlling our Kids With Drugs!

Early on the FDA approved BENZEDRINE to treat ADHD.  Benzedrine is an amphetamine!  A very strong stimulant.  The doctors liked the fact that you could jack up kids and they would improve their performance.  IF YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, YOU CAN’T TAKE THESE STIMULANTS!  Why?

Sports nutrition defines the Impact of amphetamines as:

Amphetamines, sometimes called “speed” or “uppers,” are central nervous system stimulant drugs that increase alertness, self-confidence, and concentration, and decrease appetite while creating a feeling of increased energy. The chemical structure is similar to the naturally occurring adrenaline and noradrenaline that is produced by the body. The effects of amphetamines are similar to cocaine but last longer.

Wow, this sounds perfect for kindergarten kids and high school boys and girls!

Since 1955, the drug of choice for doping up our kids is Ritalin, which is Methylphenidate and belongs to a class of drugs called central nervous system (CNS) stimulants. It works by increasing the amount of the chemicals norepinephrine and dopamine in your brain.

Today, 19% of High School boys, 14-17, have been diagnosed with ADHD, 10% of these are on Ritalin or other CNS Stimulants.

This means that 627,000 High School boys are on Ritalin type of stimulants.  Why is this a potential problem?  Here are the potential mental side effects of Ritalin:

    • Symptoms of mania, such as racing thoughts, feelings of power, and excessive energy
    • Aggression or hostility
    • Hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that aren’t real)
    • Paranoia (feeling suspicious)
    • Feeling over excited

OK, assume that only one tenth of one percent (.001) of these boys exhibit some or all of these mental side effects.  This means that we have 627 potentially extremely violent, paranoid and over excited boys in our high schools at any time!  Feel Safe Now?

But, it gets better!  What happens when these kids leave school, and stop taking these stimulants?  Who is monitoring them?  Who helps them come off of these powerful stimulants that they may have taken for 10-12 years?  NO ONE!

Well, here are some of the mental side effects of going off of these stimulants:

    • Anger: It is common to experience anger to the point of rage when coming off of this drug. This is a drug that helps people maintain self-control by stimulating activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. When you come off of this drug, your brain activity changes leaving you prone to anger spells. Do your best to recognize when you are becoming angry and try to channel it and realize that it’s a result of drug withdrawal.
    • Anxiety: Many people experience anxious thinking when they first stop taking Ritalin. This anxiety is typically associated with slow thinking and lower levels of arousal. It also may be linked to decreases in dopamine. If you didn’t have anxiety prior to taking this medication, you should experience full recovery from anxious thinking as your dopamine increases.
    • Brain fog: Since this drug is used to improve focus in people with ADHD, it is common to experience brain fog when you stop taking it. This brain fog is associated with lack of focus and inability to concentrate.
    • Concentration problems: Most people experience a resurgence of ADHD symptoms including the inability to concentrate. When you initially come off of Ritalin, you may notice that your ability to focus is worse than prior to your initial use of the drug. Your focus will improve over the course of weeks as your dopamine levels increase.
    • Cravings: Some individuals experience cravings for this drug after they quit. Usually cravings are associated with people who use it for off-label purposes such as to “get high” and weight loss. Just know that in the first few weeks of withdrawal, you may crave this drug.
    • Depression: It is very common to feel very depressed when you stop taking this drug. The reason you feel depressed has to do with decreases in dopamine and norepinephrine. It will take some time for your brain to recover from neurotransmitter changes.
    • Fatigue: This is perhaps the most common withdrawal symptom when stopping Ritalin. Some people have very low energy levels following their last dose. Do not be surprised if you want to sleep all day for the first few days of withdrawal.
    • Irritability: You may notice that you become very irritable when you first come off of this drug. The irritability may be due to decreased levels of dopamine, which can lead to anger, impulsivity, and irritable moods. Do your best to manage this symptom and recognize that it will get better over time.
    • Mood swings: It is common to experience intense mood swings during the first couple weeks of withdrawal. Most people feel depressed, but this depression may be accompanied by anxiety and anger. You may notice that one minute you may feel as though you are through the worst and then you feel depressed again. Just know that changes in mood are common until your brain activity stabilizes.
    • Motivation decrease: Most stimulants tend to increase our levels of motivation – making it easier to complete tasks. When you stop taking them, you may experience a period in which your motivation plummets. Realize that it will eventually return to a normal level, but you need to give your body and brain time to repair themselves.
    • Panic attacks: If you notice that your anxiety levels are spiking when you initially come off of Ritalin, this may make you prone to bouts of panic. In some cases, people experience fluctuations in arousal, which could lead a person to panic. If you find yourself in this situation, understand that it’s merely a withdrawal phase and that you would likely benefit from some relaxation exercises.
    • Psychosis: In relatively rare cases, people experience psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions when coming off of Ritalin. This is due to changes in dopamine levels and functioning within the brain.
    • Suicidal thinking: The dull depression that most people experience when they come off of Ritalin may lead a person to develop suicidal thinking. Low levels of dopamine may be responsible for a person feeling suicidal as well. If the suicidal thoughts become overwhelming, you may want to seek professional help.

So basically, our schools and our society, rather than deal with helping these children to control their behavior, either by helping to motivate them to succeed, or to help them control their lack of attention, I suffered from both when I started school, we DRUG THEM!  Then, we our education system is no longer responsible for them, WE KICK THEM TO THE CURB TO DEAL WITH THEIR DETOX!  

Have you heard anyone on television talk about this?  They talk about mental issues but they assume that taking Ritalin type drugs are normal!  I know many school administrators and health providers disagree that Ritalin is an issue but they need to refute the data rather than say that laypersons do not have the education to discuss this issue.  

Time to discuss all potential contributors to our Mass School Shootings rather than just blame an inert AR-15!  Drugging our most valuable assets into oblivion then disregarding them later is a time bomb ready to explode.  I have read countless articles stating that most if not all of the mass murderers in our schools were once prescribed these drugs.  Time to step back and rethink this position…

DACA Isn’t the Real Issue-LEGAL Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery Is

See the source image

“Legal Immigration”, meaning the granting of permanent residency, adds about 1.2 Million immigrants per year.  But, when you add the immigrants that will be granted residency via chain immigration, this number swells to 5.5 Million new immigrants per year!  (This does not include those granted “temporary” VISAS that allow them to work or attend school in the US.)  In short, through legal immigration, we are adding 15,000 future citizens every day!

Conversation Today:

Are you confused about all of the non-stop rhetoric coming from the Main Stream Media, pundits and your elected officials?  Do you know what a Green Card is?  Do you know what DACA, Chain Migration, the Visa Lottery, Catch and Release and other such immigration terms actually mean?

Today’s rhetoric is focused on the debate surrounding how to deal with the DACA people who were brought into the US as minors by their parents and others.  It is estimated that 1.8 Million people in the US may qualify as DACA applicants if they meet certain conditions.  Of these 1.8 million, only 690,000 have actually signed up as a DACA applicant/candidate.  There is a myriad of reasons why the other 1.1 million potentially eligible DACA people have not signed up.  It is said that DACA eligible people were brought to the US by their parents or others and have not known any other country as home.  This is probably true in some cases while others have actually applied for and traveled back and forth to their parent’s home country which is by definition their home country.  In addition to the 1.8 million DACA eligible applicants, if the current chain migration law is not changed, this could swell immigration by 6.21 million rather than 1.8 million.  This is using a chain migration factor of 3.45 which is the recent trend. (3.45 x 1.8M = 6.21M)  DACA is not the real issue, DACA plus the Current Chain Migration policy is!

If we do not deal with DACA and their related Chain Migration, we will be adding thousands of new potential DACA candidates every year.  Doing nothing leaves the DACA candidates here while their ranks continue to grow!

President Trump and DACA

See the source image

President Trump recently unveiled his 4 point criteria for allowing DACA applicant to eventually gain citizenship.  The President actually put forth all 1.8 million potential DACA eligible people on the table to be eligible for citizenship after 10-12 years.  But, they have to apply; have to qualify for the program; cannot be on government assistance during their probationary period; and cannot commit crimes as specified.  The DACA recipients would only be able to “chain migrate” their spouse and their children.

Again, if we do not deal with DACA and their related Chain Migration, we will be adding thousands of new potential DACA candidates every year.  Doing nothing leaves the DACA candidates here while their ranks continue to grow!

The other three legs of Trump’s DACA plan include modifications to Chain Migration; the elimination of the Visa Lottery; and a $25 Billion dollar funding of the wall, additional ICE agents, and major modifications to the current immigration law including the end to the “catch and release” law.  Why did the President add these three components to his DACA proposal?  Let’s look at Chain Migration, the Visa Lottery and the need to tighten border security via legislation.

Catch and Release and Other Policies:

Catch and Release is an idiotic law that allows any illegal alien who crosses our border to stay in the country until he or she has a hearing to determine if they can be deported.  Sounds great but it really means that if you made it across the border you are home free. The overwhelming majority of these illegal aliens never show up to their court hearing and disperse throughout the US.  Minors who cross and are detained at the border receive even more concessions and benefits.  Plus, if illegal alien parents bring their minor children across the border illegally, those children are now potentially DACA eligible kids.  So, without killing catch and release, you are just encouraging illegal immigration and perpetuating DACA.

The law needs to allow immediate deportation when illegals are detained at the border.  The President is asking for additional judges and court to be set up on the border to quickly adjudicate any detainee issues and expedite deportation.  If not, the border becomes a game of “tag” where an illegal alien wins when they illegally cross the border before an agent can stop them!

The use of E-Verify must be mandated for employers prior to hiring and for governmental agencies before social benefits are approved.  This database has to be updated and all VISA recipients must be added as a tracking mechanism.  VISA overstays is a major contributor to our current illegal alien population! 

Chain Migration:

Above is an example of a “Green Card” that is used today.  Please note, this is a card to identify a PERMANENT RESIDENT.

Today, immigrants who receive “green cards”, were allowed to bring in spouses, children, parents and other relatives who qualify for their “chain”.   Following a cursory vetting, those related to the initiating immigrant are granted a “green card” and were eligible to become citizens!  Today, the ratio between new “green card” holders and those they “chain migrate” is 3.45:1.  For each legal immigrant, they are sponsoring an average of 3.45 people.  Those 3.45, can eventually sponsor other immigrants.  Today, Chain Immigrants comprise over 60% of all immigration!  Between 1981 and 2016, out of 33 million immigrants, 20 million were chain immigrants!

Chain immigration of older parents can dramatically impact social security funds and add a burden to our healthcare system.  The average age of “parental” chain immigrants is 50 years of age.  This is only 12 years prior to attaining the age where they would be eligible for social security.  

Chain migration should be eliminated altogether; or, made a criteria within a merit based system; or at the very least restricted to a spouse and minor children.  Without controls on chain migration, no real migration policy reform is possible.  Chain rolls will continue to swell the immigration numbers.  

Visa-Lottery

Ending the Visa-Lottery is an absolute need.  It is an idiotic practice that has no benefit to the US as a nation.  It is a crap shoot as to who will get in and if they will be a net benefit or cost to the taxpayers.  Plus, beneficiaries of the lottery also have the right to chain migrate their families!  The US must take control of its immigration policy and ensure that new immigrants have the immediate potential to benefit this nation, its economy and culture.

Doing Nothing is Not An Option

Immigration is not one of those issues that do not have an impact if you do nothing to correct its issues.  If immigration is not addressed, each year we will add hundreds of thousand more illegal immigrants; allow more illegal aliens into this country; and continue to spend a net $115,000,000,000 (billion) each year to support the illegal alien population.  Plus, the DACA problem will continue to grow as more minor children are dropped at our borders.  Without ending Catch and Release, the problem is impossible to mitigate.  Granting DACA recipients a path to citizenship without fixing our immigration system and border security, is a fool’s errand.

A Parade to Honor Our Military-Good Idea?

See the source image

President Trump has championed the idea of honoring our military via a national parade in Washington DC.  Both the right and left have weighed in negative comments and are ridiculously complaining about the COSTS! Really, Congress just passed a budget that will add $300 Billion to our deficit and a $20 Million dollar parade is too expensive!  Get real!

Why Showcase our Great Military?

Even if you do not like or support President Trump, there is no doubt that he is one of the premier marketing geniuses of our time!  President Trump is also totally committed to and proud of each member of our military and military reserves.  Our military is dependent on Congress for its funding and a totally volunteer corps. Both of these are heavily dependent on a supporting citizenry as they can pressure Congress for funding and young volunteers to fill its ranks. 

Showcasing our military also sends a signal to the world that the US military is strong and is supported by our citizens.  This impacts our friends and enemies alike.  It is not a signal that “mine is bigger than yours” but that we love and appreciate our military and our veterans.

Time will tell whether the pundits and naysayers win the day or if our Commander-In-Chief sticks to his guns, so to speak, and holds up our great military men and women as the world’s symbol of freedom!  For those who think we ought to poll the troops, let me remind you that the Commander-In-Chief is their commander and our military is not a democracy.  This is not to say that the troop’s opinions are not important but they rely on their commander to make life and death decisions on their behalf.  I am sure he can handle a parade!

#DumpNFL-Racial Equality is a Smoke Screen

Can you pick the photo that shows Racist Hypocrisy,

True Heroism, or the result of Progressive-Left Policies?

Talk about the WRONG STUFF!

The take-a-knee crowd in the NFL now don’t even know what they are kneeling for.  Those mouthpieces who seem to want to talk for the kneelers are now using the term:

RACIAL EQUALITY

What the heck does that mean? 

What would make Race Equal? 

Can Race be Equal? 

Can you define Race Inequality? 

Who is making Race Unequal?

When We Reach Race Equality, How Will We Know? 

When you talk to or watch a Progressive-Left race-baiter and they cite “Race Inequality” as the cause for the dreadful plight of many American-Blacks, (I intentionally put American before Blacks), you can translate that to mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  The athletes who are now taking a knee cannot even state coherently why they are taking a knee. 

I watched one “professor” from Johns Hopkins University who used the Racial Inequality card as the reason for the NFL protest!  She was clueless when trying to define what she meant.  She maintained that it was increased brutality and homicide of Black men by White law enforcement!  Really, White Police shootings of Black men has declined by over 70% since the 1960’s and continues on a downward trend.  Not so much for Blacks shooting law enforcement officers!

Now you are hearing comments from NFL Team personnel that the protest is NOT against the flag or NOT against the POLICE!  Really?  Someone tell goofy Kaepernick who wears socks with a picture of cops as PIGS when he started this protest nonsense.  Any show of disrespect for our flag and our anthem is a show of disrespect for our military, our veterans, our fallen, and our law enforcement.  

  • So is Racial Inequality defined as forcing Black women to be the sole support for their families at the rate of 70% when White women suffer the same fate at a rate of 25%?  the vast majority of these Black single parent households are at or below the poverty line! 
    • Root Cause-Progressive-Left welfare rules rewards single mother families and takes away benefits when there is a father in the home!  Under the Democrat Welfare regime the Black men are used as non-resident sperm donors to impregnate Black women and enslave these women into a life of welfare that translates to a lack of opportunity and abject poverty.  
    • This is the epitome of RACIAL INEQUALITY IMPOSED BY THE DEMOCRAT LEFT WHO THE BLACKS, AS A VOTING BLOCK, SUPPORT AT LEAST 9-1 OVER CANDIDATES OPPOSED TO WELFARE ENSLAVEMENT AND THE BREAKUP OF THE NUCLEAR FAMILY.
  • So is Racial Inequality defined as Blacks being slaughtered by other Blacks in our major inner-cities?  The US has 4 of the top 50 cities with the highest murder rates in the WORLD!  Bet you can’t name them in order!  Remember this is murder rate per 100,000 population.  They are in order; St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Detroit.  Chicago (500 murders so far this year) has the most murders but with 2 million citizens the rate per 100,000 citizens kept them out of the top 50.  The vast majority of these deaths are the result of Black on Black shootings.
    • Root Cause-Lack of Choices for Black and other minorities in our inner cities forcing them into a life of crime!  The Progressive-Left promotes forcing minorities into the failed public school system creating a criminally high number of illiterate children in the inner cities.  70% of prison inmates are illiterate so there is a direct correlation between failed education and the propensity for lawless activity by those devoid of a good education.  This is the epitome of RACIAL INEQUALITY IMPOSED BY THE DEMOCRAT LEFT WHO THE BLACKS, AS A VOTING BLOCK, SUPPORT AT LEAST 9-1 OVER CANDIDATES OPPOSED TO ENSLAVING BLACKS BY INSURING THAT BLACKS HAVE EDUCATIONAL AND OPPORTUNITY CHOICE.
  • So is Racial Inequality defined as 22% of Blacks Living in Poverty compared to 8.8% of Whites living in Poverty?  The real median household income of Whites was $65,041, Blacks $39,490, and Hispanic $47,675.  
    • Root Cause:  Once again the lack of upward mobility opportunity driven by illiteracy and abject poverty is at the core of the “Black Poverty Issue”.  Black poverty is being driven by the Progressive-Left stranglehold over public education and their absolute refusal to allow poor Black families any educational choice.  Further, the Democrat Left creates “social gulags” in our inner-cities and warehouses the impoverished minorities until it is time for them to vote!  This is probably the sickest irony of our modern history.  This is the epitome of RACIAL INEQUALITY IMPOSED BY THE DEMOCRAT LEFT WHO THE BLACKS, AS A VOTING BLOCK, SUPPORT AT LEAST 9-1 OVER CANDIDATES OPPOSED TO ENSLAVING BLACKS BY INSURING THAT BLACKS HAVE AN EDUCATIONAL AND OPPORTUNITY CHOICE.
  • So is Racial Inequality defined as the Infanticide of Black unborn children by Progressive-Left abortion supporters and led by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, and now Cecile Richards, the current President of Planned Parenthood, the Left’s WHITE Eugenicists who believes that the reproduction of people of color needs to be held in check so the Whites can maintain their Superiority!  The Democrat Left’s support of racial eugenics is the true definition of White Supremacy!    Today, Black babies are aborted at a rate THREE TIMES HIGHER THAN WHITE BABIES.
    • Root Cause:  The Progressive-Left has wholeheartedly embraced Abortion on Demand and the Eugenics teachings of the inferiority of persons of color and the need to control their reproduction.  Keep just enough Black babies alive to ensure a large voting block.  How sick is this!  Where are the Black Athletes protesting the slaughter of millions of unborn Black babies!  This is the epitome of RACIAL INEQUALITY IMPOSED BY THE DEMOCRAT LEFT WHO THE BLACKS, AS A VOTING BLOCK, SUPPORT AT LEAST 9-1 OVER CANDIDATES OPPOSED TO BLACK INFANTICIDE.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to have a true national dialogue on all of these issues as the Democrat Left has so highly charged these issues that opponents of their policies are immediately labeled as racists and more.  Black and White Race-Baiters fill the air ways, along with the complicit Main Stream Media, with hate and charges of discrimination and White Supremacy on the right.  This is the Democrat tactic to insure that the Left’s hegemony over American-Blacks is maintained at the expense and to the detriment of American-Blacks.  

Only Blacks can stop the continued economic enslavement of their own.  The Democrat Left creates voting blocks by creating “VICTIMS” rather than promoting personal self-worth.   Those of us on the right who literally and physically supported the movement by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and those that continue to try to change the Left’s dominance over American-Blacks, are labeled White Supremacists and Racists and those Blacks who are trying to awaken the Black Community are labeled as “Uncle Toms”.  Just ask Dr. Ben Carson or Justice Thomas. 

As long as the Left continues to succeed in enslaving impoverished Blacks, the plight of those impoverished Blacks cannot change.  President Trump was right when on his campaign he said to the Black community that they should support him as; 

“What do you have to lose?”

Charlottesville Tragedy-Failures and Phony Outrage

The birth of a perfect storm of violence, death, and political pandering in Charlottesville, VA,

August 11 & 12, 2017.

The Main Stream Media, Left-Wing Progressives, and Republican Elites are out in force laying the tragedy of Charlottesville at the feet of President Trump.  Regardless of what he says, how he says it, he comes up deficient in the eyes of these Trump Haters. 

None of the Trump Haters bother to look at the facts or at the actual words of the President.  In order to understand what happened, it is critical to understand what led up to the myriad of tragedies that included the sad death of Heather Heyer, 32, of Charlottesville, VA. 

Below is a timeline of the events so the reader can have actual facts when assessing the true events of the final two days of this blight on the American psyche.  This story will start way back on May 30, 2017.

5/30/2017:  Jason Kessler (resident of Charlottesville, VA), the founder of “Unite the Right” applied for a rally permit for his organization.  The permit requested that Kessler’s group conduct a demonstration in Emancipation Park in the City of Charlottesville, VA.  Kessler objected to the renaming of Lee Park to Emancipation Park as well as the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee as he objected to the removal of Confederate statues and the renaming of parks to eliminate Confederate references.  

6/5/2017:  The Lee Park was renamed Emancipation Park and the Jackson Park was renamed Justice Park by the City of Charlottesville, VA.  

6/13/2017:  US District Judge Glenn Conrad ruled that the City of Charlottesville had to grant the permit to Kessler and his Unite the Right group.  The rally would take place on August 12, 2017, at Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park).  The city issued the permit on 6/13.

7/8/2017:  50 North Carolina KKK members held a rally at Justice Park (formerly Jackson Park).  1,000 counter-protesters met the 50 KKK members at the park.  The counter-protesters carried signs with “Black Lives Matter” and “Smash White Supremacy“.  22 of the counter-protesters and KKK were arrested.  

The KKK entered Justice Park in the afternoon and after being confronted by 100 police officers, some in full riot gear, and 1,000 counter-protesters, left some 40 minutes after the rally began.  The counter-protesters followed the KKK out of the park to their cars but the police prevented any direct confrontation with the KKK.  The event ended without any major incident other than the arrests.

7/17/2017:  Judge Conrad acknowledged that counter-protesters had submitted applications for assembly permits on the same day as the Kessler Unite the Right rally on August 12Local news organizations reported that Walt Heinecke has applied for counter-protest rally permits on August 12th,  for both McGuffey and Justice Parks.  At this point, the Kessler rally was permitted for a different park even though they were close in proximity.  The Heinecke permits had not yet been approved by the city.

8/7/2017: (Monday)  The city notified Kessler that his Unite the Right rally permit had been revoked.  The city also told Kessler that the city was modifying the permit to move his rally to McIntire Park, a mile away from Emancipation Park (Lee Park).  But, the city did not take any action to modify or revoke the pending permit for Heinecke’s counter-protest.

8/9/2017: (Wednesday) The city granted the 2 permits by Heinecke for his counter-protest against the Unite the Right rally.  The permit was granted to “Peoples Action for Racial Justice” and the organizer Heinecke.  

8/10/2017:  (Thursday Evening):  Kessler filed an “Instant Action” request to Judge Conrad to contest the City’s revocation of his permit.  The ACLU of Virginia represented Kessler and his Unite the Right rally group.

8/11/2017:  (Friday Morning):  Kessler and the ACLU filed an instant motion for preliminary injunctive relief against the City’s revocation.  Written briefs and oral arguments were presented to Judge Conrad.  (This was the day before the rally was to take place)

8/11/2017:  (Afternoon):  Judge Conrad ruled against the City and granted Kessler injunctive relief against the City’s revocation of his permit.  The Kessler rally was cleared to take place on 8/12/2017 at Emancipation Park (Lee Park), not McIntire Park.  The Judge basically agreed with Kessler that the City’s argument were merely against his “views” which violated his 1st Amendment rights.  The Judge also ruled that moving the Kessler rally would not dissuade Heinecke’s counter-protesters from following the Kessler no matter where it would be held in the City.  The Judge also stated:  “Thus, a change in the location of the demonstration would not eliminate the need for members of the City’s law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services personnel to appear at Emancipation Park. Instead, it would necessitate having personnel present at two locations in the City.”    THE JUDGE WARNED THE CITY OF ITS DUTY TO PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR CITIZENS AND PARTICIPANTS.  

Day of the Rally and Protest

8/12/2017:  (Saturday, 9:39am):  Violence broke out at Justice Park that was permitted for use to Heinecke and his Peoples Action for Racial Justice.  The ACLU confirmed that there was violence on both sides and that there was no police presence at the time of the altercation, State or City.

8/12/2017:  (Saturday, 10:55AM):  Matthew Heimbach, a self-described Fascist and head of the Traditional Worker’s Party stated that he and others were willing to die for his cause and for self-protection.  He was supported by a group of White-Supremacists affiliates.  When the White-Supremacists met up with the Counter-Protesters in the downtown area, they began beating each other with improvised weapons, fists, feet and pepper sprays.  The police did little or nothing to break up the melee.  Riot gear clad Virginia State Militia were a little more engaged in breaking up the fights.

8/12/2017: (Saturday, 11:06 AM):  The Albemarle County and Charlottesville City declared a LOCAL State of Emergency that would begin at 11:06AM.  The declaration allowed local, NOT STATE, to request additional resources as needed to ensure the safety surrounding the Rally and Counter-Protest.  

8/12/2017:  (Saturday, 11;28AM):  Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a State of Emergency for Charlottesville, VA.  McAuliffe stated that State Police Virginia National Guard, and Virginia Dept. of Emergency Management are ON THE GROUND IN CHARLOTTESVILLE.  The declaration was missing a time stamp and the signature of the governor nor the Secretary of the Commonwealth which is a bit odd.  

8/12/2017:  (Saturday, 11:35AM):  The Charlottesville Police posted on Facebook that the “Unlawful assembly has been declared for rally at Emancipation Park” (the Kessler permitted rally/protest).  It was not clear nor confirmed whether the Chief of Police or another official approved the declaration.  Facebook postings are not official notifications.  The police on scene at Emancipation Park notified those in the area that the assembly had been designated as “Unlawful” at 11:40AM and that everyone was order to vacate the area.  The City nor the State officials state the basis of the revocation of the permit and the rally; neither entity stated which official had the power and actually deemed the permit to be invalid; did the city council authorized the Chief of Police to designate the rally as unlawful or to declare the permit invalid.  The police officer on site invoked the authority of the Commonwealth of Virginia versus the City of Charlottesville.   If the rally at Emancipation Park was deemed unlawful, why wasn’t the rally at McIntire Park deemed unlawful and all participants ordered to leave the areas?

August 12, 2017: (11:40AM): The University of Virginia’s The Cavalier Daily reported: “Law enforcement officers in full riot gear then began forming a line at the rear of Emancipation Park, slowly moving forward to push people out of the park and toward the counter-protesters, many of whom were acting aggressively. Police warned anyone who remained in the park, on the street or in the sidewalk that they would be arrested.” (Italics added for emphasis)  The police further exacerbated the co-mingling of rally and counter-protest participants:  “Following the declaration of an unlawful assembly, many of the protesters began moving to McIntire Park, with others dispersing entirely and some staying to protest on the Downtown Mall opposite both police and counter-protesters.
Peaceful counter-protests were set up in McGuffey Park and Justice Park near downtown to provide the community with a quiet respite, offering a place to rest, first aid, water and food to those who needed it.” 

8/12/2017:  (11:40 – 1:42PM):  Sporadic violence continued throughout the late morning and early after noon with both sides being forced into close proximity.  Then, at 1:42PM, Heather D. Heyer, 32, of Charlottesville, VA was struck down by a car driven intentionally into the crowd of peaceful counter-protesters at the intersection of 4th Street, SE and East Water Street, downtown Charlottesville.  James A. Fields, Jr., White Supremacists, 20, of Maumee, Ohio, has been charged in the murder of Heather Heyer.

The perfect storm of co-mingling White Supremacists with Black Lives Matter and Peoples Action for Racial Justice in a relatively small area of a relative small town (Pop. 46,000); add in the emotionally charged topic of removing Confederate statues and renaming parks that were named after Confederate leaders and soldiers; and top it off with flawed assembly permit planning and poor law enforcement execution by State and Local officials, and you have the Charlottesville tragedy and the death of two police officers and a peaceful protestor, Heather Heyer.  

It is idiotic to divert attention from this tragedy and instead play sick politics by trying to blame the President of the United States for not condemning White Supremacists enough or for condemning the White Supremacists and the Counter-Protesters for inciting the violence.  Is there a moral equivalence when both parties are inciting violence, YES. 

Is there a moral equivalence between White Supremacists and BLM or Antifa?  The question is not what they purport stand for, but rather their actions!  IF both commit murders, destroy private property, or assault others, then both are criminals and their cause or what they say they stand for is irrelevant.

White Supremacy as a concept is abhorrent and should be universally condemned.   Thankfully their numbers are small (see Players and Definitions below).  Antifa’s assault on the Freedom of Speech and unlawful destruction of private and public property and the BLM follower’s who assaulted or murdered police officers, should also be universally condemned.  

RD Pierini

Players and Definitions:

Jason Kessler: 

Permit applicant and holder on behalf of the nonprofit “Unite the Right” (UR).  UR’s protest in Charlottesville on August 11 and 12 turned into the Charlottesville tragedy, leaving 3 dead and many injured.  Kessler’s political leanings are mixed to say the least.  He has been reported to support everything from left-wing Occupy Wall Street to White Supremacists.  Kessler was represented by the ACLU defending his rights to assembly right up to the day of the riots.  This left-wing legal organization also blamed BOTH SIDES for inciting violence…

Ku Klux Klan:

This organization was founded by members of the Democrat party just after the Civil War in 1865.  The Southern Poverty Law Center, a Left-Wing organization, describes the Klan’s participation today as:  “Today, the Center (Southern Poverty Law Center) estimates that there are between 5,000 and 8,000 Klan members, split among dozens of different – and often warring – organizations that use the Klan name.”  As described by the SPLC, the group pretty much hates everything:  “Although black Americans have typically been the Klan’s primary target, it also has attacked Jews, immigrants, gays and lesbians and, until recently, Catholics.”  This is at its core a hate group no matter how you define it.

Neo-Nazis/American Nazi Party:

These people borrow elements from Nazi doctrine, including ultra-nationalism, racism, ableism, xenophobia, homophobia, antiziganism, anti-Semitism, and initiating the Fourth Reich. Holocaust denial is a common feature, as is the incorporation of Nazi symbols and admiration of Adolf Hitler.  Other than that, they sound like a swell group! (sarcasm)  This is also a hate group at its core.  The SPLC estimate that they have less than 1,000 members across the US.

White Supremacists: 

This is not a single organization or group but is an aggregate of groups like the KKK and Neo-Nazis.  The SPLC lumps almost organization they perceive to be a hate group made up of Caucasian individuals.  The SPLC estimate that there are about 1,000 “organizations” in this category.  But, given the population of the KKK and New-Nazi groups, the total affiliates probably number less than 25,000 people.  This represents less than 1/100th of a percent of the US population!  Even if you assume that the WS = 250,000, this would still only equal 1/10th of a percent the US population.  These people are not only fringe and a hate group, they are irrelevant and on the outer fringe of society.

ACA “Obamacare” IS NOT US HEALTHCARE-LESS THAN 4% OF TOTAL HC INSURANCE

The BIG Lie by Politicians Today-“Obamacare Is US Healthcare”

NOT EVEN CLOSE!

Fact:  Obamacare(1) is actually ONLY 3.7% of our total Healthcare Insurance coverage today! (12M on ACA Exchanges)

Fact:  Obamacare Expanded Medicaid to 68M People by adding 11M people to Medicaid.  Almost as many as are covered by Obamacare Exchanges.

Fact:  Obamacare Exchange Coverage does NOT represent 1/6 of our economy today!  Obamacare Exchange Coverage is ONLY .62%, not 16.6% of our Economy!

Fact:  Employer Based Healthcare represents 47.6% of our Total Healthcare coverage insuring 155M people!

Fact:  There are 27M people still uninsured!  About the same as when Obamacare was passed in 2010!

Why Can’t Congress deal with this!

Because most Republicans and Democrats in Congress Want a Single Payer, totally government controlled, Healthcare Insurance System in the US.  They are addicted to the money the Donor Class lobbyists provide to their campaigns that include big pharma, insurance companies, and other healthcare providers.  Republicans have shrouded the Repeal and Replace legislation in a cloud of confusion hiding behind the touted “complexity” of Obamacare.

Obama himself neutered the impact of Obamacare by NOT implementing the EMPLOYER MANDATE multiple times for political considerations.  If he had implemented the employer mandate, over 50% of the nation would have been under Obamacare and a total of 298 Million Americans (92%) would have been under some form of Government Healthcare Insurance Coverage.

 

Path Forward:

  • Separate the Repeal of Obamacare into two parts; Medicaid Expansion and All Other Obamacare Mandates, Taxes, and Regulations.
  • Repeal all other Obamacare Mandates, Taxes and Regulations.
  • Put Medicaid reform in a separate bill later.
  • Legislate that insurance companies can offer health insurance across state lines and offer unlimited insurance plans as demanded by the people.
  • Legislate that pre-existing conditions be covered outside of the “insurance market” and be subsidized by block grants to the States.

Congress may NEVER pass repeal of Obamacare as there is too much hog slop to go around. 

The Never Trumpers and the Progressive Left will wage a life and death campaign against Donald Trump until the very end.  Trump will need every ounce of support his base can provide if he is to survive and get anything accomplished.

Writer’s Note:  Statistics surrounding US Healthcare coverage is difficult to accurately assess due to many biased sources.  It is also true that some people, Vets for example, may be covered under private and public insurances.

Immigration Reform-Trump’s Approach Is Correct But Global Elites will Kill It!

Image result for Immigration

Trump has consistently supported changing US immigration policy, one key segment at a time.  Global Elitist support “Comprehensive Immigration”  which means codify globalist goals of open borders and unfettered immigration, legal and illegal.  Comprehensive anything means make a bill so big no one will read it and so convoluted that no one can figure it out until it is too late.   John McCain has now announced that he will oppose President Trump by reintroducing the Global Elitist Gang of 8 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill.  Anyone Surprised! 

Trump’s Approach:

  1. Break the Complexity of Immigration into Manageable Pieces:

    1. Secure the Border:  Trump has reduced illegal southern crossings by over 75% since taking office.  He is also building the wall and increasing enforcement through Homeland Security and the Justice Department.  He is also beginning to BUILD THE WALL that will include a physical barrier supported by technology barriers to give border patrol agents a heads up of possible border breaches.   The physical wall will also inhibit the movement of drugs and continued human trafficking by forcing smuggling efforts to only be able to pass through checkpoints.  Trump has consistently stated that he would secure the southern border first and is doing just that.
    2. Green Card Immigration-Make LEGAL Immigration Merit Based:  Yesterday, Trump and Senators Cotton and Purdue unveiled the “RAISE” program to modify the current legal Green Card  criteria to be merit based.  This program seeks to bring in immigrants who are advantageous to the US economy and limit its impact on the US workforce.  It also prioritizes those who will enhance our workforce and not merely flood entry-level jobs.  This program also disallows immigrants from being on social welfare programs and limits chain immigration to close family only.  This will be difficult for Congress to fight but I am sure they will, including RINO McCain.
    3. Improved E-Verify Program:  Just like Trump did in merging the DOD and Veterans Affairs databases to smooth the transition of our military to civilian life, he will strengthen E-Verify to be more accurate and link to other relevant databases.  This will include a Temporary Visa database, social security, IRS and DOJ criminal databases.  This will insure that all types of illegal immigrants, visa recipients, and alien criminals are accurately monitored and violators deported from this country.  Employers must check this database prior to hiring and can actually be made to eliminate the paper based I-9 program that is labor intensive and paper burdensome.  This improvement must be reviewed, analyzed and developed standalone as it is key to the entire immigration enforcement system.
    4. “Temporary” Visa Programs Modifications:  You have all heard about H-1, H-2 visa programs that control the influx of skilled and unskilled workers to work in the US for a period of time.  One of these programs (R1) actually controls the entry of religious persons coming into the US under the Visa umbrella.  So, the visa program itself is a very complex set of laws that should be segregated and dealt with openly and not buried inside of a “comprehensive immigration plan”.  Trump will seek to crack down on blatant misuse of these programs by businesses who repeatedly fire American workers then rehire Visa foreign employees.  This is currently against the law and must be stopped.  Disney was the most prominent example of this violation.  Further, Trump will institute a tracking mechanism for Visa overstays where Visa recipients merely ignore their exit date and remain in the US.  This is not difficult to do as the government can cross reference Visa recipients against the social security/IRS payroll data.  Further, the Visa recipients can be added to an improved E-Verify system so when employers try to hire a overstay the overstay is flagged as unemployable.  
    5. Reinstatement of “Bracero” (Mexican for manual labor) type Seasonal Work Permits:  Prior to the left and their unions killing the 1942 “Mexican Farm Labor Agreement” with Mexico, the US and Mexico benefited from allowing Mexican workers to come into the US and work on a seasonal basis.  It also provided for humane working and living conditions.  Agriculture thrived under this program as they were guaranteed a stable supply of seasonal labor.  Unfortunately it was terminated in 1964 with the burgeoning effort to unionize farm works by the United Farm Works (Caesar Chavez and the National Unions) and was supported by the Catholic Church and the Democrats.  Lawful use of seasonal foreign workers for agriculture was replaced by wholesale illegal immigration and the rest is history.  Trump will include a version of the Bracero program to allow for a controlled supply of seasonal workers for agriculture and other seasonal industries such as hospitality.  The same restrictions for Temporary Visas will apply to verification, monitoring and enforcement.
    6. Refugee immigration Reform:  Trump will also deal with refugee crisis policy for crises that may occur in the future as well as the ongoing Syrian and Cuban crises.  His policy will more than likely place its primary focus on relocation of refugees in their own region where possible, even if temporary facilities have to be constructed.  Secondly, he will create a mechanism to allow for refugees to come to the US under stringent vetting and assessment.  

While there are more pieces to the immigration problems facing the US, these 6 blocks are indicative of the complexities involved and the need to avoid “comprehensive immigration reform” and deal with each of these blocks as individual major pieces of legislation.  This will allow the American People to focus on each block and logically assess the relative benefits and issues with each.  

This said, Congress is in love with “Comprehensive” anything as a mechanism to mask their giveaways to the lobbyists and special interest groups.  Trump will have to continue to go direct to the American People in order to thwart the lobbying by big business, the US Chamber of Commerce and others.  Trump’s focus is on the AMERICAN WORKERS and hopefully this will be continue to be supported by the AMERICAN PEOPLE who can force Congress to go along with Trump!
